The weather for last Saturday’s “Stand Up!” standout was pretty lousy, but more than a dozen of us braved the rain and chill and stood out anyway. Plenty of passing motorists honked their support. The organizers — a bunch of individuals, including me, who sometimes refer to ourselves as “the Usual Suspects” — decided to repeat the standout every Saturday till election day: from noon to 1 p.m. at Five Corners. Join us!
This Saturday, our state rep, Dylan Fernandes, will be at Five Corners at noon to kick off a canvass for the coordinated Democratic campaigns. Dylan is running unopposed for re-election, so he’s been working hard to get other Democrats elected (Jay Gonzalez for governor!) or re-elected, like U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Attorney General Maura Healey, and our state senator, Julian Cyr.
Speaking of Julian, some of the Usual Suspects have organized a district-wide postcard-writing campaign to get out the vote for Julian. If you want to help out, let me know.
Julian and Dylan are hosting a fundraiser next Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Quicks Hole Tavern in Woods Hole. It’s a mere stone’s throw (even for someone with no pitching arm) from the boat, so come on over! Sign up or make a donation at ActBlue, and hope to see you on the boat.
